Jury Selection Continues In Trial Of PETA Workers

Jury selection continued Tuesday in Hertford County in the trial of two former PETA workers charged with felony animal cruelty after lawmen say they caught them tossing dead animals in a dumpster. Adria Joy Hinkle and Andrew Cook, both of Virginia are charged with 21 counts each of animal cruelty. Hinkle and Cook were PETA volunteers in Norfolk, Virginia when they offered to take animals from crowded animal shelters in Bertie, Hertford and Northampton Counties. Their lawyer said the load of animals became too large, and the workers began euthanizing the dogs and cats.
